Colts LB Darius Leonard left in the 1st half of Sunday's win over the Bears with a groin injury and did not return. We'll see about his status heading into Week 5. Anthony Walker and Bobby Okereke finished out the Week 4 contest as the full-time LBs, tallying 11 and 8 tackles, respectively. Each would be in play for IDP lineups if Leonard misses further time.

Colts WR Michael Pittman underwent surgery on Sunday to address compartment syndrome in his calf, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's the injury that Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett dealt with last November. Per Rapoport, Pittman is expected to be sidelined through the Colts' Week 7 bye. The rookie can be dropped in redraft leagues. Indy is now down to WRs T.Y. Hilton, Zach Pascal, Daurice Fountain and Ashton Dulin.

Colts WR Michael Pittman suffered an ankle injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Jets. He's questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) is active for today’s game against the Jets. It's unclear how snaps and targets will be divvied between Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox, so you’re best off avoiding the situation in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. HC Frank Reich said Friday, though, that Doyle is "ready to roll." TE Mo Alie-Cox went off for 111 yards in Doyle's absence last week. It's unclear how snaps and targets will be divvied between Doyle and Alie-Cox this Sunday, making it a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (groin) remained sidelined on Wednesday. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him returning for this weekend's game against the Jets. Doyle's absence would make TE Mo Alie-Cox a legit Week 3 fantasy starter.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Colts WR Parris Campbell suffered a PCL injury in Sunday's win over the Vikings and will be out "indefinitely." That sounds like it'll land Campbell on IR for some amount of time. That'll elevate the playing time for WR Zach Pascal, who jumped from 62% snap share in Week 1 to 81% in Week 2. It could also increase the opportunities for RB Nyheim Hines and the TEs in the short-to-intermediate range. Campbell looks droppable in fantasy football leagues of little-to-moderate depth.

Update: Jim Ayello of the Indianapolis Star reports that a source says it's actually an MCL injury for Campbell and that there's a "low percentage" chance that he returns this season. Take Campbell out of your 2020 plans for now.

Further update: NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Campbell sprained both the MCL and PCL, adding: "No clear timetable yet, but it'll be a while."

Colts WR Parris Campbell suffered a left knee injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Vikings. He was in obvious pain and had to be carted off. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Colts DE Justin Houston (calf) is active for today's game against the Vikings. Houston missed practice both Thursday and Friday with the issue, so he'll likely be playing at less than 100%. There's some risk, though he remains in play for IDP lineups. CB Rock Ya-Sin is inactive, a surprise scratch after he didn't appear on the injury report all week. Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports that Ya-Sin has an illness (not COVID).

Colts WRs Michael Pittman (toe) and Zach Pascal (ankle) are active for today’s game against the Vikings. They’ll serve as Indy’s #3 and #4 WRs.

Colts WRs Michael Pittman (toe) and Zach Pascal (ankle) are questionable for this weekend’s game against the Vikings. Pittman was limited in practice all week, while Pascal got in a full practice on Friday. Neither guy is a fantasy option, but their absences would mean more targets for WRs T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (ankle/knee) missed practice all week and has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. HC Frank Reich suggested Friday that Doyle might miss multiple games. With TE Trey Burton (calf) on IR for at least the next 2 weeks, Indianapolis is down to TE Mo Alie-Cox. He’d be a flier in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (ankle/knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He now appears to be in real danger of missing this weekend's game against the Vikings. With TE Trey Burton on IR, Doyle's absence would leave Mo Alie-Cox as the Colts' top TE.

Colts TE Jack Doyle missed practice Wednesday. The team listed him with ankle and knee injuries. Doyle played 73% of the snaps in the opening loss to Jacksonville, with no other TE reaching 40%. And it was a neck issue that cost him camp time. We'll see if this situation challenges his Week 2 availability.

An MRI has confirmed that Colts RB Marlon Mack suffered a torn Achilles in Sunday's opener. Mack will miss the rest of the season and hit free agency next offseason coming off a major injury. His absence leaves the Colts backfield to Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines. Hines actually out-snapped the rookie 39 to 26 in Week 1, tallying 7 carries and 8 targets to Taylor's 9 carries and 6 targets. We're expecting Taylor to quickly emerge as the clear lead ball-carrier here, but Hines should remain plenty involved, especially in the passing game.

The Colts "fear" a torn Achilles for RB Marlon Mack, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. That'd be a season-ending injury -- and leave Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines in the backfield. Taylor would easily be the best fantasy bet, but Hines has been surprisingly involved in the opener.

Colts RB Marlon Mack suffered an ankle injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Jaguars and is officially questionable to return. His absence leaves Nyheim Hines and Jonathan Taylor in Indianapolis' backfield.

Update: The Colts have ruled Mack out for the rest of the game. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Colts fear a torn Achilles' tendon for Mack.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz isn't listed on the Week 1 injury report. He missed some time late in camp with what was reported as a "minor soft tissue injury," but it's a non-issue now. Despite an beat-up WR corps (again), Wentz is a solid QB1 play against Washington this weekend.

Colts WR Parris Campbell has cleared the league's concussion protocol and is a "full go" for Week 1, according to Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star. That should return Campbell to a top-3 WR spot for an Indy offense that has dealt with injuries to its top 2 TEs during camp. Campbell carries plenty of upside into the 2020 season at a late-round price.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz sat out Sunday's practice with a "minor soft tissue injury," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Wentz is day-to-day. This doesn't look like a situation to worry about. We'll certainly keep an eye on the QB's status, though.
